Missouri FCCLA Region 2!
My name is Shelby Jennings and I am your Region 2 State Vice President of Elections. I want to begin
this letter by saying I am very proud of Region 2 and all of our accomplishment this past year. I also want
to wish you on having a big impact on not only our region but our state by getting more people involved
with FCCLA. I hope to see all of you at the following events this year such as: STAR Events, Access
Conference,, State Leadership Conference, National Cluster Meeting, and National Leadership
Conference. I hope that I will be able to see you all participating in many other events during this 2010-
There will be three National Cluster meetings this fall. The three places include St.Louis, Missouri on
November 5-7, 2010, Charlotte, North Carolina on November 19-27, 2010, and also Albuquerque, New
Mexico on November 5-7, 2010. These meetings are a great opportunities for the students and advisors
to come together and develop more leadership skills and they can come together and discuss more
ways to develop our national programs in taking action for this year. I hope that all of you will be able to
attend this fall. National Leadership Conference this summer will be held in Anaheim ,California. Capitol
Leadership is also a perfect opportunity to come and take part in a four day leadership conference.
These four days include meetings, planning, and trainings for chapter members and state officers. This
will be held September 10-14, 2010, in Washington D.C.
STAR events (Students Taking Action with Recognition) are competitive events in which members are
recognized for their hard work and proficiency in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and
career preparation. I hope that we have even more participants than last year and have more state and
national qualifiers as well.
This year our goal as a state is to increase membership by 5% which means our region has to get 52
more members to join FCCLA. I believe our region can exceed that number and we can have a greater
outcome. I would like to be able to come and do a presentation at any of the schools to talk about
FCCLA and what FCCLA can do for not only for you but what type of opportunities it can bring in the
future. I believe that Region 2 can bring positive motivation to students at your schools and we can have
a great outcome and increase in membership.
A Word From Me
I am very grateful to have been chosen to represent Region 2 and I’m very proud of all of the student
and advisor involvement that we have as a Region. I know that our region has very strong members,
advisors, participants, parents, and officers and I believe we will have a very successful 2010-2011 year. I
want to thank you again for being a great region and I’m very excited to get to work with my officers
during this year and make this year very successful and full of excitement. Please don’t hesitate to
contact me for visits or any questions you may have throughout the year! I would love to help and
answer any of your questions you may have. Thanks Region 2 for your support.
